CHA Day 1

Well, here we are at the end of day 1 of CHA and the first word that springs to mind is - shattered !!!!

We have had an amazing day, meeting up with all our regular suppliers and making lots of new contacts with some brand new and exciting new products !!


So what have we ordered so far ??.......................All of the latest releases from Tim Holtz of course, including the Stamps, Alterations, new colours of Distress Inks............in fact we have ordered everything new that Tim has produced !!!!


It goes without saying that the latest October Afternoon products will be hitting the Craft Emporium as soon as possible, we managed to get some sneak peaks of the latest two collections, "Fly A Kite" and "Thrift Shop" which are simply gorgeous as usual !


Check out "Fly A Kite"













and "Thrift Shop"













Pink Paislee had a beautiful display with three fab new collections, pictures to follow next time, as there is no photo editing on this laptop and it's taking ages to upload anything !!! But hey, we did promise Blog Candy, so leave a comment and you may be the lucky winner of one of their brand new 6 x 6 paper pads !!!

The random generator will select the winner in a few days time :)


We finished up the day with a fab meal at the famous Cheesecake Factory and now, I cannot move ...... seriously, I cannot !!........ so with an early start in the morning it's time to get some sleep ready for the serious shopping tomorrow...........talk soon :)
